Where have all the Bot's gone ?

AsabellAsabell Belleville, ONPosts: 18Member

Started a new alt on Wednesday evening and have just completed my 6th entire zone without seeing one Bot train. Did Anet managed to wipe the Bots in one swat? Even better I haven't seen a gold seller in chat or received any mail spam during the same period. Big Kudos to Anet if they managed to do in two months what couldn't be done in WoW for 5+ years

    I haven't noticed any lately either.

    All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.

    I get banned in the forums for games I love, so lets see if I do better in the forums for games I hate.

    I enjoy the serenity of not caring what your opinion is.

    yep they implemented a code for detecting those apps apparently. I've noticed all the trains that got reported and then return a day later are completely gone now, never see them posting gold selling crap in LA anymore.

    Amazing and they did it ALL withOUT a single authenticator to take more of your money. hmmm

    about botting i don't know

    but about gold selling. I honestly think the fact you can buy gems > trade for gold is a MAJOR factor in this. I know we saw allot of advertising in chat the first couple of weeks, but maybe they found out the profit wasn't what they hoped it would be.

    Many people won't risk getting bannend of hacked for 1 extra euro, so they'll buy gold via Anet legally. Who knows maybe Anet really did do something UBER, but i think tradingpost gets the most credit

    Nope.  No bots in Spark Fly Fen,  Malchor's Leap or Cursed Shore.    Those have always been the heaviest on my server.

    so what you are saying is that bots aren't run on stolen accounts?

    Kinda funny how the bots all vanished around the same time the complaints over account suspensions and bans increased on the forums xD

    maybe the bots and gold sellers got bored with the game like other players?

    They create new characters when they hack accounts, if you right click on bots  99% of the time they have normal account names.

    So you're saying the account hacks (no authenticators) didn't happen?

    I never noticed the bots.  I didn't see them in RIFT either when people were bitching about it.  I did notice them in Lineage but that was obviously quite a long time gone now.

    Here's what happened to the bots: Bot perma-death match (instanced tournament), with total and complete account deletion and IP banning on the line for loss. Winner gets to be a vendor in Lion's Arch.  :)

    He has a solid "clue". As he said, the bots run from stolen accounts. Authenticators help eliminate stolen accounts.  Less stolen accounts, less bots. /shrug
